Soileos increases soil carbon and helps mitigate climate change impacts by contributing to improved soil health and productive agricultural ecosystems.
Lucent Biosciences accelerates sustainable agriculture by delivering crop nutrition that improves yield and soil health while sequestering carbon.
And the industry is taking notice. We’ve raised $19 million from Protein Industries Canada Supercluster and a consortium of companies to help Canadian farmers further improve their substantiality and reduce carbon emissions through the commercialization of a new micronutrient fertilizer. The investment by Protein Industries Canada was announced by the Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry and the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food.
Lucent Bio’s flagship technology—Soileos®—is a sustainable, non-polluting, climate-positive micronutrient fertilizer created from the upcycling of pea, lentil, and oat hulls – co-products from food processing. This approach makes a circular economy showcase, with crop residues becoming fertilizer that will be applied to the field to help grow the next crop. Made with patented technology, Soileos® is a bioavailable crop nutrition product where nutrients are only released under biological processes from the crops and the soil microbiome. The use of Soileos increases revenues for both farmers and food processors.
